July 4th Sparklers!

4th of July is just around the corner, and when I think of the perfect way to spend the holiday I think of hamburgers, pasta salad, fireworks, sparklers, and of course, cocktails! It’s never too early to start planning your drink menu, and below are some festive “sparkler” cocktails to pair with your July 4th festivities!

Pink Berry Sparkler

  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 5 raspberries
  • 3 oz. Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Moscato Rose

In a mixing glass, muddle the raspberries.  Add the pineapple juice and Moscato Rose, with ice, and stir briefly.  Strain into a chilled champagne flute and top off with extra Moscato Rose. Garnish with a raspberry

Mango Peach Sparkler

  • 1.5 oz Absolut Mango
  • .5 oz Hiram Walker Peach Schnapps
  • Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Moscato Rosé

Build in a rocks glass over ice or frozen mango cubes

And why not throw in a little boozy dessert?

Mama Say Mama Sa Ma-Ma-Ma-Su-Ka
• 3 parts Mama Walker’s Maple Bacon Liqueur
• 3 scoops Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
• 3 tsp Chocolate Syrup
Put all ingredients in blender and blend with ice. Pour into highball glass for this frozen treat. Add 1 or 2 sticks of bacon for garnish.

As a disclaimer, I am NOT suggesting drinking sparklers while playing with sparklers, that could get dangerous :) SPARKLERS_-_sparklers_5-9-09_white_bursting_LARGE
